Sustain the Mane Salon
Welcome to our Portrait of a Suite Series! Each week we highlight one our fabulous Service Providers and her unique business.
Today meet Katie Schipkowski, Sustainable Cosmetologist and Owner of
Sustain the Mane in our Suite 101! Katie specializes in Organic Cuts and Color including Balayage, Fashion Colors and Textured Cuts. She also offers a Health Coaching Series to complete her clients' experience.
PWD: What do you love about your unique business?
KS: I absolutely love that I have free rein to set and share my high standards for organic beauty! I love learning and sharing my knowledge and passion with every guest that sits in my chair! It’s so crucial these days to be informed about what we are putting in and on our bodies so that we can be confident in making the best decisions for ourselves and for our planet!
PWD: Why did you get started in the industry and why do you do what you do?
KS: After a health awakening in 2012, my passion for truth and conscious living overflowed into my career. My new direction led me to further my education in the food and cosmetics industries and I was discouraged by the common practices found in many of the most trusted companies in our consumerist society. My findings encouraged me to develop my own personal care and household products, some of which I now use in my practice. Today my salon provides all organic and sustainable services with a strong rooted focus in health and wellness. My never-ending thirst for creating art and empowering the beautiful souls around me is truly fulfilled in this industry. For that I am very thankful.
PWD: How long have you been with us at Phenix West Denver?
KS: November, 2016

-Am I ready to start my own salon?
We realize starting your own business can be overwhelming & scary. We offer a month to month lease commitment to give you a real shot at success while not feeling trapped. Phenix West Denver has a super supportive community of like-minded entrepreneurs who are quick to offer business advice & help each other out.
-Will my clients follow me & is this location easy to find?
The first things we hear from your clients on their first visit are, “Wow, this place is beautiful.” & “I’m so proud of her.” Located right off of I-70 & Kipling, we are easy to find. We can guarantee your clients' first visit to your new salon will wow them. They’ll be excited to come back. If you provide good customer service, your clients will want to follow you. There are many ways to ensure your clients will know how to find you and we can provide a list of ideas to get you started.
-What is the difference between renting a chair in a salon & renting my own private suite?
There are some distinct differences between a chair rental & suite rental. When you rent a suite with us, you are your own boss. You are in control of your schedule. You work any day or night, at any time, & as often as you like.
You create the space of your dreams. You design your own brand & decorate your space however you like. In your environment you enjoy a private space for you & your clients while still having access to a supportive community of like-minded entrepreneurs.
You use your own techniques and products, offer your own services, and charge your own prices.
Your clients belong to you. You’re not building loyalty to a salon, you’re building your own business.
Did we mention the cost to you is similar and often the same as many chair rentals?!
